Coming to Terms with Complexity in Doctrine

Recently, I have come to realize that many of my recent posts have turned into bonfires for straw men. PSA is hardly what I made it out to be, and non-universalism has a number of ways of making sense of the love of God. By responding to projections rather than propositions, it seems as though I’ve failed to represent these very complex ideas well and in so doing have rendered my responses meaningless, at best.

As an author, I would like to offer a sincere apology to my readers for that. You deserve better from a man claiming to represent Jesus Christ.

Do I agree with PSA? Maybe a lot more than I know think. Do I think that universal reconciliation (UR) is necessary to uphold the love of God? No, Christians have been doing so for many years without UR. It is not on me to suddenly resolve the many mysteries that lie within the Christian Faith. Perhaps my Modernism would do well to become post-marked.

At the end of the day, I am in awe of the God on a cross. His grace still amazes me. His love is still a mystery. (Philips, Craig, and Dean, anybody? =) ). The road is narrow that leads to life, and those who find it are few. May we all be among the few now.

Sincerely,

~ David Abrams
